STORRS, Conn. (AP) Jalen Adams scored a season-high 31 points and UConn beat Tulane 87-71 on Saturday in the American Athletic Conference.
Josh Carlton and Christian Vital each added 18 points for the Huskies (11-8, 2-4), who snapped a two-game losing skid. Vital reached 1,000 points for his career with a 3-point shot in the first half.
The Huskies never trailed, but were up just 44-41 before going on a 16-5 second-half run.
Adam's double-clutch shot in the lane after a turnover gave UConn a 21-point lead with just under five minutes to play, effectively putting the game out of reach.
Tulane shot 49 percent from the floor, but was just 3 of 16 from 3-point range. >> Read More
